i think some of the weapons could use a few "tweaks" plenty of mods do that without making the weapons too uber, but honestly i think most of them are fine, some of the problems people point out are there to make the game more challenging, like having to avoid enemy fire between shots or change weapons in the middle of a fight cause reload takes too long, if all the so called problems were removed so would the challenge. Personally i like trying out the mods that tweak a bit here, and a bit there, keeps me playing
i think the weapons were fine! the pistol is supposed to be a piece of crap, if you made the shotgun any better, or the range longer, the game would be too easy. i kinda agree with the chaingun, the rocket launcher was good, the plasma gun is good-note: it was a prototype, it's not going to be perfect! and the BFG was good too. I agree with the fists, though
I am little disappointed with the chaingun. It really should have been a whole lot better, with high damage and rate of fire. But...I am sure there are people who like it just the way it is.
The shotgun to me was a bit of a letdown they could have gave it a bit better range and don't get me started on how it sounds! :naughty:
when i picked up the pistol it looked like a powerful weapon like a magnum but when you fire it it just sounds like a piece of s*** same with the mechingun it looks like a powerful weapon but firring an automatic nail gun would sound more powerful (and do more damage)
well yes, the 22 spread of the shotgun is just ludicrous, not even a totally sawnoff shotgun would have THAT spread, personally i have the spread of 8, a mix of realism and usefullness, im thinking of turning it to a slug shotgun with a spread of around 0.3, could be fun ^^ Chaingun i seldom use, no matter how i script it it lags me down, sux going from 60 to 15 fps once i press fire Rocketlauncher i turned to grenadelauncher, imo its more useful being able to lob a fragnade into those rather narrow corridors of UAC ;) Pistol must b the most ugly pistol in any game i ever seen, but thats just me i guess, anyhow i dont see why ID made it behave like a big@ss desert eagle kinda pistol but the stopping power of the FN5 7 from CS (dont wanna diss the 5 7 tho, one of my 2 fav CS pistols hehe), depending on my mood i either change its behaviour to that of a .50 deagle or a fastshooting 5 7-ish 20round pistol I didnt start using the BFG until i got hold of Dafamas BFG Vortex mod, now its actualy FUN using it :p Kudos to Dafama :D Machinegun is ok i guess, when i first started playing Doom3 those immensly sucky sounds made me never use it, worst MG sounds i ever heard, so LAME, but with other sounds its ok, but still i seldom use it, im a shotgun kinda guy ^^ Soulcube and chainsaw i never use, i have nada against them but i dont like to use them, not sure why hmm Grenades are way too useless like someone stated above, bounces like a rubberball and hardly kills even a trite, so with a lil tweaked scripting and some changes in def file, they can now be used as a real frag behaves :p Im prob the only one ever in this, but i dont like plasmagun, prob cuss the projectile isnt at all what i imagine how a hot burst of plasma would be, feels more like one shoots with like a maids duster, dont like plasmagun at all (sorry Theresa Chazar), so i turned it into a flamethrower instead, took someones flamethrower mod and changed plasma into flamethrower ^^
And for the record, i have NO probs with Dafama writing about his mods here, better mods cant be found : )

I like the weapons. Ok, the flashlight on its own REALLY pissed me off, but made the game more fun, walking round either smacking zombies or in the dark; no other game dares do this! Moreover the BEST weapon is the double barraled shotgun in RoE - bloody awsome. The only thing I dont like is the BFG projectile, but it is just an improvement on the 2D version, moreover, as stated by others, the chaingun is a bit of a let down, but I still think it is useful the way it is!
